5 Reasons the Dallas Cowboys Will Beat Kansas City Chiefs

The Dallas Cowboys will attempt to start the NFL regular season 2-0 for the first time since 2008 when they line up against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

This will be a stiff test given the crowd noise that will undoubtedly be present for the Chiefs home opener this year. A team that went just 2-14 last season is already halfway to last season's win total, even if that Week 1 victory came against the next worst team in the NFL last year.

News bulletin for new Kansas City head coach Andy Reid: Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert is not Dallas Cowboys counterpart Tony Romo. In fact, Romo is almost better when not even playing than Gabbert is when the former Missouri Tiger is on the field.

The Cowboys' Week 1 victory over the New York Giants was impressive in some ways, but it was also alarming in others. I have already discussed why Dallas will likely drop this game to the Chiefs, but this time I'll point out exactly how Dallas can win this game.

The biggest concern coming into this contest is the health of Romo, who suffered bruised ribs against the Giants. This concern grows when considering that the Kansas City defense sacked Gabbert six times in its regular season opener in Florida.

If the Dallas offensive line can keep Romo standing up for mostor allof this game then the Cowboys have a much better shot.

If the Cowboys can accomplish the following goals then Dallas will fly back home 2-0 and feeling pretty good about itself before hosting the St. Louis Rams in Week 3.
